Sue’s Lingerie Favourites!


Elle Macpherson wasn’t wrong when she said, “if you are wearing lingerie that makes you feel glamorous, then you are already half way to turning heads!”

The right lingerie can make you feel so confident, and let’s face it, when you feel really confident, you automatically hold your head high and walk that little bit taller.

SoSueMe readers regularly mail me with questions about lingerie, so I decided it was time for a post on  the topic, especially as there are so many fab pieces in shops at the moment.

Whether you’re a fan of pretty feminine pieces or sexy corset numbers, matching sets or contrasting colours, designer labels or high street, here you will find lingerie looks for every shape, taste and price range.

Agent Provocateur is usually pretty expensive, with items like this often priced as high as €400.

In that respect, this colourful number at €60 is a damn good bargain if you want to add a little designer glow to your lingerie drawer!

Best of all, if gives great definition to the figure!

When I saw the caged bralet from New Look, it immediately reminded me of a piece from the Agent Provocateur range.

Granted, the Agent Provocateur item will give you more of a boost in the cleavage department, but if it’s just the look you are trying to emulate, then the New Look bralet isn’t a half bad place to start!

I get a lot of messages from readers asking me for lingerie recommendations for big busts.

Well Kelly Brook’s range of lingerie is TO DIE FOR.

Quite a lot of the pieces in her bra selection go from an A cup to an F cup, while her underwear selection is also available in plus size.

Her lingerie range is just so fab, and when you wear the right piece for your shape, you can immediately see just how much they flatter the figure.

5ALingerie is not limited to skimpy briefs and thongs!

High-waisted lace briefs are very much a part of the lingerie family, especially if you are trying to emulate the vintage-burlesque style of Dita Von Teese, (which I will show you how to do in my next lingerie post!)

If you want to recreate the hugely expensive designer looks of La Perla and ID SARRIERI, then try these two pieces I found from Urban Outfitters and New Look!

If you are self conscious of the tummy area when wearing lingerie, then a body suit may be just what you are looking for.

A ‘body’ will tuck the tummy in and give your figure a fab hourglass shape!
